By Mike Handzus, Lakefield Who would have guessed that the Legislature would pass selling alcohol on Sunday so soon in the session?

SIBLEY, Iowa — To call Bobbie Snow a survivor would certainly be accurate. It also just might be an understatement. Snow has overcome one form of cancer and continues her battle with another, yet has continued to give of herself in many ways over the years.
